Serving Pad Thai on Food Porn Friday

Lord knows I can certainly use a big bowl of pad thai right now. I saw this amazing tangy, savory, sweet and slightly spicy stir-fried recipe from the kitchen of Seonkyoung Longest, whose nickname is Flower Pig. She says this is the BEST Pad Thai recipe to make at home.

She cautions that making this dish is a little tricky to master but offers some personal, excellent advice when making this unforgettable mouthwatering dish.

1. First, don’t be afraid of using enough oils. Because of the type of noodles, without generous amount of noodles, you will end up a huge chunk of noodles and you don’t want that right?

2. Second, make sauce in a bowl before start cooking- this is actually what you have to do any type of stir fry recipes. This way you can taste then sauce ahead- so you can fix it if you need to, not while you are cooking. Good stir fried food’s secret is high heat, so prepare your ingredients.

3. Third, if your noodles are not cooked some reason, no worries! Just add more water, 2 tablespoons at a time!
